No. 20, Bantry

No. 20, Bantry I walked around Bantry Town a bit snapping the local streets and this house appealed to me. I think I saw it in b/w and the lovely texture of the walls. It could also have been the hill and I wanted a small break from pushing the buggy around too of course.

Learning the ropes

Learning the ropes Ropes tie up small boats in Bantry, Co Cork. The tide is very far out and many boats are stranded in the mud. I love the texture of rope. Yummy. Looking forward to meeting you all at the photowalk tomorrow!

Old farm building in ruins Out in the wilds of Co Cork, to the north of Bantry I found an old deserted farm. The house looked like it had been empty for some time and some of the out buildings were in worse repair. Don’t forget the photowalk on Sunday!

O’Keeffe Lounge and Bar

O’Keeffe Lounge and Bar I happened upon the O’Keeffe Lounge and Bar while wandering around Bantry last Sunday morning. Given the name of the establishment I just had to take a shot didn’t I? Note the “Welcome to the pint depot” quotation? Congratulations to Gingerpixel who won Best Photoblog at last night’s Irish Blog Awards.Read More »
